Doesn't matter if you make your company $1 billion; if you signed up to make $5,000 then that's what you are going to make.

What about the retired actors and singers who are starving but companies are making $100s of millions using their likeliness, old movies, or music because they sold the rights away? That's capitalism. They don't get paid because they didn't negotiate properly.

Nobody "deserves" anything; just a fact of life in a capitalist society.
Even still, Dana gave out more money than my parent makes in 2 years to a bottomfeeder just for hitting a triangle choke.

Some of them work a real job.
